Opeth are a band who certainly know how to divide a fanbase. There are people such as myself, who listen to it because they like the progressive nature. Then there are people such as Joe, who listen to it because they enjoy the death metal nature. I for one love the band, and here's my favourite album of theirs.

A perfect mix of the aforementioned progressive and death elements, "Still Life" tells the story of a man living in medieval times who loses faith, and subsequently is outcast by his village. From the hard-hitting opener "The Moor" to the melodic closer "White Cluster", this album is all that could be expected of the music made between "My Arms, Your Hearse" and "Blackwater Park".

M4a, ~320 kbps (VBR)
